The Nhow Hotel in Berlin, Germany…
Has got to be one of the hippest spots to stay in Europe. From local musical performances to art and fashion, this is more than a hotel, it is a performance destination location. This modern concept by interior designer Karim Rashid is a breath of fresh air in a city that is often celebrated for its historical architecture and design.
Known as Europe’s first music hotel this unique spot is located on the banks of the river Spree in Berlin and a short walk to MTV Berlin and Universal Music. The hotel property is ideal for concerts, fashion shows, conferences, and seminars. It includes professional recording studios, top-of-the-line spa facilities and free internet connections throughout the hotel. Amenities also include a full gym, a two-tiered spa and two saunas available with easy access for guests. Guests also have access to a number of musical instruments while staying at the hotel, including a collection of electric guitars and keyboards which can be borrowed at no cost.
The quirkiness of the hotel’s lobby extends to the rooms which are designed in bright, modern and trendy colors. Guests can choose from three color schemes depending on the location of their room. Rooms come in pink, blue, or pink & blue and are meant to be a space for guests to find inspiration and remove themselves from the craziness of the city. The design of the rooms has a very futuristic feel, though the accommodations are comfortable and accommodating. Each space includes double or twin beds, heated bathroom floors, a personal safe, free Nespresso & Tea, bathrooms equipped with rain showers, and wireless internet access. There is also onsite laundry, dry cleaning, shoe shine and ironing services available upon request.
The hotel is located in a part of the river that was once a functioning harbor. The proximity to the local art community, nearby trendy neighborhoods of Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg and public transportation also makes it an ideal stay for those looking to further explore the art scene in Berlin.
